Google Can't Doodle a Saint?

Today is St. Patrick's Day and Google shows a fat guy with red side-burns in Wellingtons picking up stones while a black faced sheep reads an Ogham marker ( pre-Christian Druidic markers from the 4th Century A.D.) .  No indication that God ( All Three of Him) has anything to do with the day, much less the saint himself.

That should please Wiccans, Satanists and atheists, no end.

Googgle Doodles regularly sanitizes nasty pieces of DNA, like Stalin's favorite artist, film maker Sergie Eisenstein, or skin-flint plutocrats who helped build public schools by showing them hugging a diverse armful of children. Generally Google builds a progressive hagiography of second raters who pass the Progressive smell test and create non-existent secular feast days.

St. Patrick's Day now passes as a secular feast day, I guess.  In Ireland, the BBC and its ugly step-child Raidió Teilifís Éireann (RTE) call all of the moral and cultural shots these days and OXFAM dictates all public policy.

One of Ireland's best and most independent voices has been silenced by the PC forces of the UK and Ireland.  Kevin Myers wrote a column about pay and gender.  He was castigated as an anti-Semite and a misogynist. Myers retorted, "The issue is are we allowed to differ from the politically correct and consensual norm that dominates the media?"

Nope.  No Google Doodles for Kevin Myers.  He is too pro-Israel and therefore ( in BBC PC) an anti-Semite.

Like the United States, Ireland is now a firmly secular nation with all of societal ills that national mindset entails - disregard for life from womb to tomb, run-away drug abuse, increased suicide rates, senseless violence and a disappearing middle class.   Google wants America to be the Banana Republic that is Illinois.  Ireland seems to care even less about its becoming an oligarchy, where misery is checked only by Red Carpet events of its island Hollywood.

St. Patrick's Day is a religious feast day.  A Celtic Cross was too much for Google and its overlords and secular bishops.

I Google this, for now.
